It's been quite some time since I have blogged, so the other day when I was catching up some youtube videos and saw Jennifer McGuire showing off a "new" comeback crafting medium and technique called gilding flakes, I knew I would begin crafting and posting again! Tonic Nuvo recently released their version to the market and Jennifer was showing them off and some cool techniques using them. As soon as I finished watching the video, I knew I had to have these gilding flakes and had to play with them using Jennifer's technique, but I also had some ideas of my own that I wanted to try. This weekend, I was finally able to play a little bit with my new flakes. They were much lighter and airier than I had anticipated and I has little flecks all over myself and my crafting room! I have a few more ideas I want to try out hopefully this week, but at least I got to try them out and I love the results!
Here is my first attempt with gilding flakes:
Do you see that awesome shine that you get?! I'm totally in love with this stuff! :)
